12 x 12″ Cardstock Patterned or plain if you wish to stamp your own designs on.

Decorative papers, main images I used Joanna Sheen’s COuntry Diary of an Edwardian Lady CD

Calendar, see downloads in the links section.

Method

Calendar Templates

Basic Calendar – Original. This is a modern yet classic font, which will compliment most styles of project.

Basic Calendar – Oriental Style This is an oriental style font which will compliment Eastern projects.

Basic Calendar – Elegant Style Font. This is a classic style font, it suits the Edwardian Lady themes and would work well with Anna Griffin styles too.

Why not ‘collect’ all three. These templates are for personal use, you are welcome to create projects using them for gifts or as completed projects to sell. If you use these templates for projects you publish in print or online, please link back to me here.

Would love to hear what you think of these, and to see your finished calendars :)
